A Pink Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing – Strange Bedfellows “Curing” Cancer

By Aimee Devlin

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Breast cancer giant Susan G. Komen has a mission, and a noble one at that: to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and investing in science to find the cures. According to their website, they are the ONLY organisation addressing breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact against the disease. [i]. As the largest breast cancer organisation in America with more than 100,000 volunteers and partnerships in more than 50 countries, Komen is a household name.

Despite admitting that “making healthy lifestyle choices may reduce your risk of breast cancer”,[ii] Komen continually place their support behind questionable companies, whose very actions contribute to the disease they purport to be curing. The organisation also omits one very important area from their celebrated wide focus — finding the cause.

How and why could this be?

A World Awash With Pink

Komen’s choice to partner with questionable companies is so widespread of late that the Breast Cancer Action organisation has coined the term pinkwashing as part of their Think Before You Pink ® campaign.

The Secret To Changing The World Nobody Talks About

By Lissa Rankin MD

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

You can’t change something by making it wrong. You can only effect change if you can wake up the sleeping people, and in order for them to hear you, you must have compassion for how they got where they are.

Think of all the truly effective change agents. They didn’t come out with hate, guns blaring and voices screaming. They came out with love and spoke to the hearts of those who knew there was another way.

That’s my intention with medicine. Many people are angry at medicine because our system is so broken. I used to be too. But the establishment can’t hear you if you’re beating them up. They’ll defend against you, even if you speak the truth.

The only way to get them to hear you is to love the very people who are out of alignment, with a universal truth. Then, feeling loved and safe, they have the opportunity to release their defenses and examine their own beliefs and actions and choose whether they’ll come with you or dismiss what you’re teaching.

Turmeric Extract Improves Asthma Patients on Meds

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Bronchial asthma can be a life-threatening condition and even the medications used to treat it can be deadly. All the more reason why a study on a turmeric extract safely improving the condition is so exciting.

According to the World Health Organization, bronchial asthma afflicts between 100-150 hundred million people worldwide (roughly the equivalent of the Russian Federation.[i] The condition is believed responsible for over 250,000 deaths annually.[ii] I myself suffered from this condition from at least six months of age when I was first diagnosed until the age of 18 when it disappeared almost overnight.

I still remember routinely experiencing severe asthma attacks requiring emergency room visits and the injection of epinephrine to open up my constricted airway passages. It was not until college, when I started getting deep into nutrition and natural healing, that I discovered the complete elimination of cow’s milk products like milk and cheese resulted in the total remission of my asthma, enabling me to leave behind the inhaler I used to tote around wherever I went. Interestingly, it was around six months of age that I was prematurely weaned off of breast milk onto cow’s milk based formula. I suspect I am not an isolated case and that there are thousands of unsuspecting asthma patients who would benefit from removing cow’s milk products (especially conventionally produced and beta casein alpha-1 containing forms) from their diet as well.

The Belief Effect in Psychokinesis – Psychics, Skeptics and Science

By Brendan D. Murphy

Repeated ignorant or stubborn denial of the existence of certain powers does not keep them from existing — except for us! ~ Harold M. Sherman

Goat, Sheep or Jackass?

Have you ever noticed how closed-minded skeptics rarely if ever have any experiences with the siddhis (psychic faculties) or “the paranormal” in general?

Soviet research into psychokinesis involving Nina Kulagina demonstrated qualitatively that a skeptic’s mere presence does have an effect on a psychic’s ability to function properly. Hence, with a closed minded skeptic (CMS) or several in the room, or otherwise involved in the experiment, a psychic is more likely to “fail”, thus “proving” the CMS right (at least in his own narrow reality tunnel). It is a case of self-fulfilling prophecy.

New-science researcher and film maker David Wilcock has suggested that if consciousness creates all known energy, can manipulate matter, and is ultimately a vibrational movement of aetheric/zero point energy, then the level of consciousness, intelligence, or love present is directly proportional to the vibrational speed of aether/torsion in that locality. Higher speeds invite higher degrees of intelligence and/or love because there is then more energy available, meaning will has more fuel for exerting effects on “external” systems.[1]

Are We Programmed To Be Depressed?

By Nanice Ellis

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

It is said that we are now living in the era of enlightenment; we are beginning to wake up and take responsibility for our lives through the power of mind, the law of attraction and many other sci-spiritual advancements. It’s an exciting time to be alive, but none of this is new information. Most of what we know today, about creating our reality, was actually coming to light in the early 1900’s. This is when quantum physics first made its debut and we were learning about the power of mental science through brilliant writers, scientists and philosophers such as Charles Haanel and many others.

The 1920’s was a very exciting time – it was a time of dance and celebration. It was a time of New Thought – and that New Thought was beginning to fill the minds of the masses. People were waking up and becoming empowered. They were learning that life responds to their thoughts and emotions, and if they change their thinking, life will follow. It was a brilliant time to be alive. If we had continued on this path, without interruption, where might we be today?

But, of course, that it is not what happened. The New Age of the early 1900’s was harshly interrupted by the Great Depression.

8 Impressive Health Benefits of Turmeric

By Dr. Edward F. Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Turmeric, or Curcuma longa, is an ancient spice used traditionally among the peoples of India and Asia as far back as 2,000 BC. The spice belongs in the ginger family and has been highly prized in the culinary traditions of these ancient cultures for millennia. Turmeric imparts a vibrant yellowish hue to curry dishes, and the spice is also used as a natural dyeing agent for cloths. In Persia, turmeric comes from the word saffron and is closely related to the spice.

The main phytochemicals that give turmeric its most impressive and wide-ranging health benefits are curcuminoids. Amazingly, over 9,000 medical and clinical research studies have been conducted on this amazing spice and its extracted curcumin in recent years, with most finding significant physiological benefits.

Long used in Ayurveda, dry skin brushing is a powerful — yet exceptionally economical — healing therapy. Upon first glance, the practice may not seem like much.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Recipe)

By Trinity Bourne

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

I am often asked about healthy breakfast options…

Most of the time, I enjoy fresh fruit or a smoothie in the morning, although there are days when fruit just doesn’t cut it. When deciding on what to eat for breakfast I want to make sure that every morsel is healthful, nutritious and of course, delicious. This is where my Quinoa Breakfast Bowl works a real treat…

It’s the perfect, cooked, gluten-free, dairy-free morning meal. It leaves me feeling vibrant, light and alive as well as pleasantly nourished and satiated. It’s ideal for occasions where regular porridge would just be too heavy (I always find regular porridge a bit too heavy for my sensitive system, so I tend to avoid it altogether).

Use fair trade organic quinoa and a good quality organic coconut milk for the best results.

Minesweeper – How Activism Works

How Activism Works

“Being the change we want to see in the world” is first and foremost. Our lifestyles, disengagement from the matrix and raising of consciousness are paramount.

But with that comes activity. We cannot be consciously aware of what’s truly going around us without being prompted and moved to tell others what’s going on and doing something about what’s set before us. Creating a conscious awakening has to take place before anything else.

You never know just what wonderful energy you are helping to release into the fray when those you affect join the awakening.

The Passion for Truth

This expression, “don’t leave one stone uncovered” is a true searcher’s motto. Whether it be forensics, detective work, investigative journalism or literal archeology, leave no stone uncovered or tunnel unexplored. This clearly also applies to the passionate alternative researcher’s methodology. Leave no part of the rabbit hole labyrinth unexplored.

Those who experience a genuine wake up generally go on a personal campaign of truth-finding and have their lives so fundamentally altered they’ll never be the same.

Turmeric Extract Improves Brain Function In One Dose

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Your spice rack may contain the safest, most fast-acting, brain-boosting substance medical science has yet to confirm effective in a human clinical study.

A remarkable new study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology titled, “Investigation of the effects of solid lipid curcumin on cognition and mood in a healthy older population,” reveals that the primary golden-hued polyphenol found in the ancient Indian healing spice turmeric known as curcumin is capable of improving cognition and mood in elderly adults (60-85) when administered in either short-term [acute], chronic, or short-term-on-chronic dosage schedules.

The study involving 60 healthy adults found that a single dose of 400 mg of a solid curcumin formulation (trade name Longvida ® (non-affiliate link)) resulted only one hour later in significantly improved performance on sustained attention and working memory tasks, compared with placebo.
